In my experience, Master Documents doesn't work very well. Actually, that
functionality is pretty grievously broken. See. e.g, for details. There are links
in that document that purport to have workarounds for when you absolutely,
positively have to use the feature, but I would use Extreme Caution.

As for merging two documents - I have used "Compare and Merge" with
relatively short documents without too much difficulty; I have no idea how
well it would work for a long document.
